Harvest 2020


Harvest 2020 is a new PHS program focused on addressing growing hunger and food insecurity in the Philadelphia region.

PHS is asking our powerful community to dig in and plant more food crops this year with extra to share.

Our goal is to help mobilize and influence thousands of people to grow vegetables this season.

Everyone is welcome to learn and grow with us.

Give to PHS to Support our Work 

Your generosity funds all PHS programs that increase the health and well-being of the Greater Philadelphia region through horticulture – including Harvest 2020, which especially supports people in underserved communities to grow and share food for themselves and their neighbors by helping give access to gardening supplies through our community-based partners.

The Need

  • Almost 12% of households in the Greater Philadelphia region suffer from food insecurity. 
  • Before COVID-19, 1 in 5 Philadelphia residents did not have access to three meals a day. 
  • Food pantries need fresh produce this season, with demand having increased by up to 3x times since 2019. 
  • Harvest 2020 will mobilize thousands of people to grow food for themselves and their communities, reducing our reliance on conventional food systems.
